Feels like a lot of this shyt is a mirage focused on securing as much financing as possible. Once the money and market is secured they then start building what they can.
The Theranos "fake it til you make it approach" is done by more businesses than we'd assume.
@Piff Perkins what you’re talking about is what @JustRegularBlack is referencing. The woman running the company had a bunch of people working off of excel spreadsheets and databases but sold it as A.I software to Big Banks’s and Investors for hundreds of millions. Then it came out the datasets were fraudulent and the whole thing collapsed.

*edit* My mistake that was Charlie Javis con she pulled with student loan databases.

Got the con artists mixed up. :laugh:

That's the MO of all these tech bros. Hype an idea beyond belief to secure venture capital or pump up the stock price as much as possible and slowly but surely disappoint with said idea. Succession showed this with the speech Ken gave about his social media bs.

Is there going to be outrage about this "stealing jobs" like there is for immigrants crossing the border and "stealing jobs"?

This AI shyt ain't gonna ever take off to the level people think it will. Even AI art is starting to get boring to people and just oversaturating places like pinterest, it's like the art equivalent of plastic bags, and bottles.
